Julio Bashmore unveils new single, Simple Love; listen here
Sep 1, 2014 4:33am | Fact Magazine

Simple pleasures from camp Bashmore. 

Last we heard from the Bristol producer, he was reactivating his Velour project with Hyetal. He’s now premiered a new solo single, Simple Love, which got its maiden play on Annie Macs BBC Radio 1 show last on Sunday.

Those who’ve been sniffy about Bashmores recent output are much more likely to be on board with this one – a misty deep house track with echoes of 2010s career-best Footsteppin. Vocals come courtesy of J’Danna.

The track is reportedly plucked from Bashores debut album, which is now expected to drop in February 2014. Earlier this year, we collared Bashmore to talk about his favourite record - Michael Jackson’s ‘Speed Demon’.


DiSection: Simian Ghost 'The Veil' album track by track
Sep 1, 2014 3:47am | Drowned In Sound

Simian Ghost's new album, The Veil, is out on September 8th 2014. The eighteen tracks are a wonderful spectrum of supremely catchy miserabilism inspired by Brian Wilson, Yo La Tengo and Broadcast.

The band sent DiS an exclusive track by track commentary, looking into the influences and lyrical inspirations for the album...

Stream The Veil


Float is a nod to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, both musically and lyrically. I actually wrote the core of this song in my sleep, right at the end of the recording sessions. I remember hearing it in this weird dream, I cant really remember it exactly, there was something about the ocean and this melody was playing. I woke up and had a guitar right next to my bed, so I immediately found the chords and made a voice memo of it on my phone. This is not something I say to sound cool or artsy, I actually write a lot of music in my sleep. Most of it is terrible though.

The lyrics are very straight forward. Its basically about how we all need to sort of give in and allow ourselves to be carried sometimes, because no one makes it alone. Were flock animals. You can see it as an invitation to whoevers listening to just sit down, relax and let their minds be carried for a while in this music. We then decided to let it start with waves, theres some pretty straight forward symbolism there as well. It made for a pretty opener I think.

After the first song dr...

Donato Dozzy and Marco Shuttle announce collaborative 12 series as Anxur
Sep 1, 2014 2:00am | Fact Magazine

Donato Dozzy - he of approximately umpteen dubby analogue techno releases – has announced another promising collaboration.  

Much of the Italian veteran’s best work has been produced alongside other artists: his 2012 Voices From The Lake LP with Neel won blanket acclaim, and Spectrum Spools reissue of his late-’00s Aquaplano material with Nuel remains one of 2014s best dance reissues.

Add another collaboration to that list: Dozzy has just announced a new series of collaborative 12s with fellow dub-techno traveler Marco Shuttle. Trading as Anxur, the two Italians will release a series of 12s of coiling techno with a dark and hypnotic edge on Shuttles own Eerie imprint. The first disc, The Anxur Takes Vol. 1, will arrive on September 20, and offers weightless 4×4 with some vintage Radiophonic touches.

Head over to the Clone website to hear snippets of the tracks.

Stream: Ryan Adams new self-titled album
Aug 31, 2014 10:13pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams will release his self-titled 14th studio album on September 9th via PaxAm Records in conjunction with Columbia. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full at NPR.org.

The 11-track follow-up to 2011’s Ashes and Fire was recorded with songwriter and producer Mike Viola (Mandy Moore, Rachel Yamagata). Adams reportedly spent $100,000 recording an early version of the album with Glyn Johns that he eventually scrapped, calling it “slow, adult shit.” He also found time to record a 7-inch of punk rock tracks titled 1984.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Adams described the routine he and his band worked out during the recording sessions. “I was like, I’ll go in with a couple bros at seven o’clock and just jam. We would, like, smoke a bowl and drink some tea and the words came free-flowing out of me,” he said. “It gives me chills just talking about it.”

The album is preceded by two singles, “Gimme Something Good” and “My Wrecking Ball”.

Pre-orders are now ongoing.

Ryan Adams Tracklist:
01. Gimme Something Good
02. Kim
03. Trouble
04. Am I Safe
05. My Wrecking Ball
06. Stay with me
07. Shadows
08. Feels Like Fire
09. I Just Might
10. Tired of Giving Up
11. Let Go



Maybeshewill - Fair Youth
Aug 31, 2014 6:27pm | Drowned In Sound

It's right there in the name. Maybeshewill. A sense of romantic optimism. Idealism, perhaps. Emotion has played a consistent part in the Leicester outfit's sweeping arrangements to date. Where post rock brethren like, say, This Will Destroy You connect through heavyweight assault, Maybeshewill, for the most part, tend to adopt a lighter touch. The edges may be a little soft, but they are nonetheless capable of cutting through.

Fourth album Fair Youth, like those that came before, wears its considerable heart on its sleeve from the off. Another journey, a hand extended, beckoning you to come with. A brief, pulsating ellipsis clears the path for 'In Amber' to immediately take flight, all genre elements quickly merging into one searching form. It's a rush, the sound of a band throwing everything at scaling peaks of their own making. Fair Youth continues an established pattern as Maybeshewill attempt to burn bright at every turn.



Despite the energy and marching delivery, the band's musings often ring quite delicate. They're never fragile, however. There's an important distinction, particularly musically, between emotion and angst, and Maybeshewill, that name and all, continue to find the right balance. 'You and Me and Everything in Between' is a waltz where light deftly dims between bursts before piano, strings and focused percussion neatly stitch together. The title track amps this up further, allowing for, of all ...


J Mascis - Tied to a Star
Aug 31, 2014 6:26pm | Drowned In Sound

Its strange that the idea of a J Mascis solo album still seems odd to so many people. After all, whilst the chemistry between Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph is what really makes Dinosaur Jr the genuine force that they are something only confirmed upon revisiting the Barlow-less Nineties albums it is Mascis who continues to write the majority of the bands material. His albums as J Mascis + The Fog were, admittedly, tired efforts from a songwriter who had carried the burden of Dinosaur Jr alone for a decade, but the reactivation of his main band has clearly rejuvenated Masciss songwriting. That the three post-reunion Dinosaur Jr albums are close to matching the quality of the groups original trio of records makes this quite clear.

There was also 2011s Several Shades of Why, a superb collection of songs showcasing Masciss underrated ability to work outside the distorted alt-rock context that Dinosaur Jr will always be best known for. The only real problem with Masciss solo debut proper, in fact, was its tendency to sound a little like a selection of unfinished ideas for Dinosaur Jr songs, something largely down to the not infrequent focus placed upon trademark electric guitar playing from the Jazzmaster toting six string hero.

The bones of Several Shades of Why were, of course, provided by acoustic guitar and its this instrument that dominates Tied to a Star. Mascis has often spoken in the past about how the guitar solo was th...


Stanley Brinks & Freschard - Pizza Espresso
Aug 31, 2014 6:26pm | Drowned In Sound

Although its highly unlikely that Stanley Brinks aka Franco-Swiss singer-songwriter André Herman Düne paid much heed to Radio 1s Head of Music George Ergatoudis recently declaring albums to be an endangered species, he certainly keeps releasing them like theyre going out of fashion. As one third of Herman Dune and under various guises including Ben Dope, Klaus Bong and Ben Haschish (theres certainly a theme) hes released over fifty records. Just a matter of months ago he released Gin, a collaborative album with almost equally prolific kindred spirits across the channel, The Wave Pictures, with whom he shares a similarly low key musical outlook and a chemistry honed by multiple collaborations.

Pizza Espresso sees Brinks (because thats what hes called here after all) duet throughout with another regular collaborator, French songstress, flautist and washboard player Freschard for an album of 'love songs about drinking and drinking songs about love'. Its a stripped back affair, but in addition to Brinks ever present acoustic theres slide guitar, plaintive bar piano and muted sax. The slide guitar in particular (probably played with an actual empty bottle) sets the wistful summery vibe throughout. On album opener If You Have the Time, the sound ripples out from the strings unhurriedly and on the following Stay a Little Longer the notes seem to stretch out, as the evening might, into eternity. Warmth is the main characteri...

Made in America’s Philadelphia installment has been postponed due to severe weather.

According to a post on the festival’s Facebook page, “all bands should play as scheduled after we re-open.” Kings of Leon, Pharrell, Spoon, and Girl Talk.

The same weather has also caused the cancelation of the final day of NYC EDM festival Electric Zoo.

This is a developing story



Electric Zoo cancels final day due to severe weather

NYC EDM festival Electric Zoo has canceled the remainder of its Sunday festivities due to severe weather. The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for the entire New York City metropolitan area with severe storms expected.

Kaskade, Chase & Status, Bingo Players, and Alesso were among the acts who had their performances canceled.

This marks the second straight year the final Electric Zoo was cut short. In 2013, city officials canceled the festival a day early after two festival goers died from drug overdoses and four others were hospitalized. In response, the festival was forced to adopt new security procedures.
